Organic Earthly Delights grows its Wheatgrass in biodynamic soil using certified organic wheatberries from our local Rainshadow Organics. Wheatgrass juice is a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient. Two ounces of Wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the finest, raw, organic vegetables. Wheatgrass has twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges. It contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a balanced ratio. Wheatgrass is a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids, and more. It has about 20% of total calories coming from protein. This protein is in the form of poly peptides, simpler and shorter chains of amino acids that the body uses more efficiently in the blood stream and tissues.
Wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier, especially of the liver and blood. It can be used in conjunction with therapeutic dosages of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients,
It helps neutralize toxins and environmental pollutants in the body because Wheatgrass contains beneficial enzymes that help protect us from carcinogens, including Superoxide Disumates (SOD), that lessens the effects of radiation and digest toxins in the body. It cleanses the entire body of any heavy metals, pollutants and other toxins that may be stored in the body’s tissues and organs.
Wheatgrass needs to be juiced in a press. We use the Omega 8006 model and will soon have juicers available for you to get started juicing right away. Most people start with 1 ounce of Wheatgrass juice each day and work their way up to 2 ounces per day. For people that are in a health crisis, it is often beneficial to work up to 2 ounces of Wheatgrass juice twice a day.
The Wheatgrass juice should be consumed fresh within fifteen minutes of juicing for the best results. The juice should always be taken undiluted and on an empty stomach so the nutrients can be absorbed more efficiently. Powdered and freeze dried Wheatgrass supplements are nowhere near as effective as fresh Wheatgrass juice because these nutrients quickly begin to oxidize (break down) shortly after juicing.
When it is consumed fresh it is a living food and has bio-electricity. This high vibration energy is literally the life force within the living juice. This resource of life-force energy can potentially unleash powerful renewing vibrations and greater connectivity to one’s inner being. These powerful nutrients can also prevent DNA destruction and help protect us from the ongoing effects of pre-mature aging and cellular breakdown. Recent research shows that only living foods and juices can restore the electrical charge between the capillaries and the cell walls which boosts the immune system. When it is fresh, wheatgrass juice is the king of living juices.
Among other things Wheatgrass juice is particularly high in chlorophyll. Wheatgrass cleanses and builds the blood due to its high content of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and therefore contains more healing properties than any other element. All life on this planet comes from the sun. Only green plants can transform the sun’s energy into chlorophyll through the process of photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is known as the ‘life-blood’ of plants. This important phytonutrient is what your cells need to heal and to thrive. Drinking Wheatgrass juice is like drinking liquid sunshine.
Chlorophyll carries high levels of oxygen which is especially powerful in assisting the body to restore abnormalities. The high content of oxygen in chlorophyll helps deliver more oxygen to the blood. This is a key marker indicating health recovery for abnormalities, ailments and disease. Oxygen is vital to many body processes, especially for the brain which uses 25% of the oxygen supply. This high oxygen helps support a healthy body.
To your health!
